Can I make one game in a set run a different retroarch core?


Recommended Posts

Not sure where i post this...

Can I make one game in 1 platform run a different retroArch core IN launchbox?

I have my saturn platform but  some games  need the yabasanshiro libreto instead of the beetle all the others use. 

I think if i had a command line paremeter i could place that in EDIT GAME / LAUNCHING - use costom command line paremter ? (might be wrong).  I do have the choice to select either core on launch,  as ive set them both up but I cant have 2 defaults and i cant see a setting to default for an individual game :?  when I select the game it goes to the default and so fails to work 😞

I also want to do the same for n64 and mupen64plus next and paraellel64 in retroarch so pls tell me if this is possible.

Any ideas? pls

Thank you!

Edit the game you want to launch on a different core: go to "Emulation" > tick "Use Custom Command-Line Parameters".

Enter: -L "cores\core_name.dll" -c "config\core_config.cfg".

-L = Core dll name

-c = core config name (optional).

thank you for reply...:)

I tried this

-L "cores\yabasanshiro_libretro.dll" -c "config\yabasanshiro_libretro.cfg"

and this

-L "cores\yabasanshiro_libretro.dll"

and both now say then clicked on - "the rom file doesnt exist...."

what did i do wrong?

sorry im quite dyslectic so might have made a typeo.

Also what is the "optional" core config?

Thanks!

Check if the path to your rom file is set correctly.

The default settings file for RetroArch is retroarch.cfg located in the RetroArch folder where all the settings are stored. But you can also create a per core settings file located in the config folder.

YEs same path as before and all working.  The command invaliadtes the rom some how. 

WIthout it no issues but manually need to select core etc... but with it = no longer works 😞

OOC where did you get your command lines

Any ideas........

i looked else where but not had any luck.

ps love moneky island haha

Is .mds a rom file?

good question. ITs a iso but still works perfectly...

cant see why that would matter when we're not specifying the rom but the core ?
